-traveled resident of the state. >> hi. i'm rick steves. >> reporter: rick steves for 20 years hosted a popular public travel show was prominent among those campaigning for legal marijuana. >> i spent a third of my adult life in europe hanging out with people who think it's wacky to be locking up people for smoking pot. >> reporter: in a show from amsterdam, steves gave a preview of what could soon be coming to cities and towns in washington. >> throughout the netherlands, bars selling marijuana are called coffee shops. amsterdam alone has over 300. >> reporter: he says america should not fear. >> consumption is not going to go up a lot. by every statistic, our government and the dutch government, americans smoke more pot than the dutch, and the dutch have the most liberal laws on pot in all of europe. >> reporter: seattle's city attorney peter holmes also pushed for the new law. >> all we've done is achieve by prohibition is fill our jails and make drug dealers quite rich. >> reporter: he says legal marijuana even with high taxes will be cheaper than illegal marijuana. >> want to put the drug
, come from two billionaire-backed nonprofits. >> jennifer:66%. >> steve schwartzman steve bechtel. these are guys worth billions that don't want to pay a penny more in taxes and they have the money to help retaliate against republicans who break the pledge. historically, they have funded primary challenges, ads to push the republicans to the far right on this issue. >> jennifer: okay so americans for tax reform has a pac and that's what they give to. those two billionaires. >> trade association technically but it operates as a pac because they buy ads and do a lot of the electioneering stuff that a pac would do. >> jennifer: while he's raising money from his allies, from these two donors and others, i'm sure. 66% tells you. he's also essentially lobbying for tax breaks for entities like general electric. >> that's right. you know, everyone talks about the first part of the norquist pledge, not to raise the tax rates but the second half of it is basically a promise not to cut tax credits which as you know, m
sources of stimulus for this economy in the near ferm? >> steve, i like the humor around the group, and i think it's a slightly schizophrenic time. i think one can be deeply worried about the compression of growth, the collapse of inflation, and the possible revival of 1930s style policies around the world. that's deeply worrying. on the other hand, i think there is some space to be slightly optimistic that we're opening up opportunities for what i call a pivot to inhe flags both here in the united states and around the world. >> this is just around the corner, and it's going to destroy the economy and inflation has not ticked up. it's been low for the past few years. you say maybe a little inflation wouldn't be bad for the economy right here. kind of a counterintuitive argument to make. can you lay that case out a little bit? >> yeah. the big concern when you have a heavily indekted economy here in the united states and around the developed world the last thing you want is deflation, because that means the debt burdens get heavier and it becomes harder to pay them off. what you want esse
but some conservatives, ohio congressman steve latourette, has argued giving the president what he wants and reducing the debt by $4 or $5 billion. >> it depend wlats what the pac is. this is an administration that has 1 trillion plus deficits for each four years. >> one part of that that republicans have talked about, that 2%, and whether you're going to protect tax break force them. steve latourette said some people who call me, they're more worried about the fiscal cliff than about rates going up a couple of points. thomas rooney in your party, if there is truly entitlement reforms that's going to preserve social security and medicare for generations to come, it's going to be very difficult for me to oppose higher rates for the rich. what about that? >> and to mr. rooney's point, if in fact there were fundamental, significant reform of medicare, medicaid and social security so that we in fact save and strengthen and secure those programs, just like we did in our budget,those were included in the president's proposal, then that's something that we would talk about and very seriously co
the city's manager lafayette city manager steve faulk has been out shopping for a new pipe. >> so this morning, my city engineer and i are meeting with teams of local contractors to determine who if anybody has the type of drain pipe that would be appropriate for that creek. and specifically, we're looking for sections of pipe that are 10 feet in diameter. and so it's not something that you exactly go to home depot and buy off the shelf. typically, you have to order these on a custom basis but we're searching the bay area and in fact all of the entire state to see if anybody has enough sufficient quantity of that size pipe to drop into that hole and if they do, we'll see if we can find a contractor to do it. >> reporter: the city council appropriated some emergency money last night for will faulk. he has a million dollars now from the general fund to get this fixed. earlier estimates that it would take months to do, city council says that's not good enough. they want it fixed as soon as possible. reporting live from lafayette, ken bastida in mobile5. back to you. >>> a woman ridin
we have [speaker not understood] from the puc. if you introduce yourself. >> i'm steve ritchie from general water from the puc. on this item there are literally hundreds of proposed items trying to connect to the grid in california. a lot of these are renewable energy projects, but they all need to connect to the grid in a way that is safe for maintenance [speaker not understood] electricity to the citizens of california. some of these projects will potentially actually impact the city's transmission facilities from the central valley and if they're not mitigated can affect our ability to provide allowable electric service to our customers. this particular project is with north star solar. they're proposing to build the 60 megawatt solar generating facility. the cost of their piece of mitigating the potential effects of connections is currently estimated to be $2.9 million. that number may actually change because it is really an aggregate number for all the projects that may connect to the system and some of those projects may fall by the wayside as they go forward. we actually have

that perhaps you can indicate what the language is. >> yes, we have steve general manager from water. the language would not put the money in the controller's reserve but basically amounts in excess of $100,000 would be on reserve at the budget committee. so, we would come back rather than on quarterly reports, we would just come back for expenditure of funds in excess of $100,000. that we agree is probably the simplest mechanism to put in place for all concerned, give you guys the authority to control it. make it administratively easy for us to do that. >> thank you. to the budget analyst, in terms of the 100,000, remind me why there is the threshold recommended at 100,000. >> we recommended that threshold to be consistent with the grant approval, accept and extend threshold. >> okay. so, colleagues, we have with recommended change and i'll read that into the record. so, let's see. on page 1 lines 9 and 10, which is consistent with the version that you have before you, the language should have "and placing various mitigation funds on reserve with the board of supervisors." and we wo
